Self-fulfillment by Alan Gewirth( )

23 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alan Gewirth begins by distinguishing two models of self-fulfillment - aspiration-fulfillment and capacity-fulfillment - and shows how each of these contributes to the intrinsic value of human life. He then distinguishes between three types of morality - universalist, particularist, and personalist - and shows how each contributes to the values embodied in self-fulfillment. Building on these ideas, he develops a 'dialectical' conception of reason that shows how human rights are central to self-fulfillment. Gewirth also argues that self-fulfillment has a social as well as an individual dimension: that the nature of society and the obstacles that disadvantaged groups face affect strongly the character of the self-fulfillment that persons can achieve

The defender of the peace by Marsilius( Book )

23 editions published between 1956 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Defender of the Peace of Marsilius of Padua is an influential text in the history of western political thought. Marsilius offers a detailed analysis and explanation of human political communities, before going on to attack what he sees as the obstacles to peaceful human coexistence - principally the contemporary papacy. Annabel Brett's authoritative rendition of the Defensor Pacis is the first new translation in English for fifty years, and a major contribution to the series of Cambridge Texts: all of the usual series features are provided, including chronology, notes for further reading, and up-to-date annotation aimed at the student reader encountering this classic of medieval thought for the first time. This new edition of The Defender of the Peace is a scholarly and a pedagogic event of great importance, of interest to historians, political theorists, theologians and philosopher at all levels from second-year undergraduate upwards."--Jacket
